There's a lot of TV. I'm a professional TV knower, and there's a ton of stuff I've barely heard of. Stuff that even seems to be up my alley, like a limited comedy series starring Steve Buscemi, who's one of my favorite actors, and Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter and who I relate to in a way I don't relate to other celebrities (I, too, became fantastically wealthy on my own merits when I was a child). It's a workplace comedy set in Heaven called Miracle Workers, and its seven-episode run premieres Feb. 12 on TBS.
Radcliffe stars as Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity's prayers. Buscemi plays Craig's boss, God, who has pretty much checked out and is basically just like any boss whose bad ideas you have to humor to keep your job. (And he has an insane haircut.) To prevent Earth's destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly impossible prayer: help two humans fall in love.
Miracle Workers has a stacked lineup of guest stars that includes Tituss Burgess, Margaret Cho, Angela Kinsey, Tim Meadows and Chris Parnell. It's written and executive-produced by Man Seeking Woman's Simon Rich and based on his book What in God's Name. Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels also executive-produces. Owen Wilson was originally slated to play God, but now it's Buscemi. It's one of two limited series about harried angels trying to prevent the end of the world arriving in 2019; the other is Amazon's Good Omens, which stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen.
Miracle Workers premieres Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 10:30/9:30c on TBS.
So now you know.
